Have your say

Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys are loved the world over, but we want to know what makes them so special to people in their home city.

The quartet from High Green have been confirmed among the headline acts at this summer’s Leeds and Reading festivals and are also up for Best British Group and Best British Album at this year’s Brit Awards.

Their success began right here in Sheffield so let us know your favourite moments.

What’s their most memorable gig you’ve been to? Were you in the Olympic Stadium in 2012 when they were the best part of an awe-inspiring opening ceremony?

Did you go to school with frontman Alex Turner, guitarist Jamie Cook, bassist Nick O’Malley or drummer Matt Helders?

Do you have pictures from before they were famous or from a gig you went to?

We want to celebrate their success but we need YOUR help.
